Winter Banquet


Winter Banquet: Feb 26 & 27, 2016

Please save the date on Feb 26 or Feb 27 for “an adult night out to celebrate great food, theater, and friendships.”

The Winter Banquet is the Youth Group’s 18th annual catered dinner and entertainment fundraiser for their summer LIFE trip and student retreats.

At 6:30, we will warmly greet you at our northeast entrance. A time of mingling with our guests will follow. At 7pm, we look forward to serving you dinner in our grand room, informally known as Common Grounds. This will be followed by dessert and coffee. At 8pm we will begin our planned entertainment.

Tickets are available for purchase after all weekend services on Feb 6/7, Feb 13/14, Feb 20/21 or online



Teens Fundraise to Attend Youth Group Retreats

Our youth group really embraces the annual trips we go on together (i.e. LIFE Conference Trip 2016).   These retreats help teens grow spiritually, experience new adventures, and develop friendships.

These trips also cost something and we understand the extra expense is not easy. This brings up the question, “Is there fundraising for our students to help them go on a trip?”  YES! And a large fundraising event is coming soon at our annual Winter Banquet. The students serve a delicious dinner and put on a show full of skits, music, and interactive content.

Adults, please save the date for our eighteenth annual Winter Banquet on February 26 & 27.

Students, please save the date for our first practice on Sat Jan 9, 9-11:30am. This will be a mandatory meeting for all who plan on on participating to be a part of this fundraiser.

Once Upon a Windy City – Winter Banquet 2015

Chicagoans love the Loop and El train, deep dish pizza and ketchup-less hot dogs, the Bean and Navy Pier, north-side and south-side teams – everything Chicago.

“Once Upon a Windy City”, a mash-up of the things we love about Chicago and fairy tale stories, was the theme at the 2015 Winter Banquet.
